I'm sure alot of you use Google Maps to find new spots to grow, as I have been, but Microsoft has an even better mapping site: http://maps.live.com/ Type in an address or zipcode near where your looking, and use the "BirdsEye" view. Much better detailed images of the landscape then Google maps. You can see openings for light and much better detail of the land. I have loved Google maps since it came out, but this is so much better. Enjoy and Happy growing this year! I'm going for my first outdoor run this year also.
